School Board Approves Interact Club

 

President Joseph Taylor announced that the board of directors for the Benton Harbor Area Schools approved the formation of an Interact Club at the high school.  A committee will be formed to help establish a chapter next school year 
Club Foundation Helps Seniors Enjoy Toronto

Our club's foundation provided a grant to help 21 graduating seniors enjoy a trip to Toronto, Canada. The students paid for most of the bus trip. The group purchased passports for the zoo, aquarium, etc.  Highlights included Castle Loma and walking on the glass floor several stories up.  The kids enjoyed the diversity of people and food.  They quickly learned that a dollar from USA was worth $1.20 Canadian. People were very friendly and welcoming.  Our own Felicia Smith was one three chaperones.  The photo above is hers.
